    Better learn how to spell it first. Personally, I'd go with Gamma Delta Iota.

    I would join the Pikes since Bobby Bowden was one.

    Out of those options, I'd have to say DTD or Sig Eps.

    I personally am good friends with the Sig Ep recruiters, so if you want there contact info PM me.

    As a girl, I liked the AGRs as a whole the best, but there are douches in every bunch. Of the ones you listed, I would go with the Delts. Sig Eps would be my second choice.

    Re: OK narrowed it down to a few Franternities tell me what you think

    I was a Sig Ep, graduated in 2003. I could tell you a lot about that chapter, if you want more information PM me. It's hard for me to comment much on what the chapter is like now since I've been away for several years, but I can tell you that the guys in there are pretty good guys from what I've heard. The house is just completing a major renovation and it will be one of the nicer Greek facilities on campus when it is finished, in the body of a major historical house. We partied pretty hard, I'm sure they have fun still but I think the house will be dry now with the renovation, although I'm sure they will find a way to party off campus or something. Location on sorority circle certainly doesn't suck either.

    Myself and several of my closest friends there were definitely not your typical fraternity people, most people are surprised that I was in a fraternity. I am very proud to be a Sig Ep.

    That said, the chapters you listed are decent ones, or at least were ten years ago. I had several friends who were Delts. Didn't know many Pikes but they have a good national chapter as a whole. The few SAEs I knew I didn't think much of, but that was more of a personality thing and hopefully wasn't representative of their chapter.

    Again, feel free to PM me (or skibumspe for that matter) and I'd be happy to tell you more about Sig Eps.

    sigs eps and delts are the way to go out of those 4 houses. the new edition to sig eps is looking good so far from what ive seen. id personally stay away from pikes and i cant comment much on SAE. ive had personal experiences with the 3 said houses multiple times (we were paired with sig eps and delts for either homecoming or greek week and they are both good hosues)

    I say go to rush events at those houses and then make up your own mind. Granted, my experience is 10+ years old now and coming from the sorority side of things, but I knew great guys in each of those fraternities. I also knew some huge douchers, too. Those are some of the larger houses, so you're going to get a variety of guys. You probably won't like or get along with everyone, but you should be able to find a group that you feel most comfortable with.

    too bad all the good houses got kicked off and/or replaced with the AGR, Farmhouse, Triangle type. i.e. Nerds.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    I can't speak for Triangle, but AGR and Farmhouse are far from being nerds. They are active and leaders in many university, departmental, and greek activities. I would highly recommend you check them out, unless you just want to party and not develop leadership and scholastics.
